There’s nothing quite like faith to make everything seem like it’s all going to be okay. It’s far from surprising that faith (whether in be in a god or karma or the ability of the human race to conquer its foibles and become something better) is such an integral part of most people’s lives. Comfort, security and a sense of purpose – what else can offer that kind of emotional value? In its absence we are no more lost, but the impact of that yawning void is far greater.
For those of you who never knew you wanted to see our plucky protagonist Kite in full 3D colour, take a look below at Izak’s Elite Dangerous character model, designed to be as close to Kite as possible:
“I THINK WE’RE LOST.”
“Hey, I’ll get us out of here. Have a little faith.”
Those weren’t stars. Pull right out to reveal that they’re in a cavernous room that is covered, walls and ceiling, in blinking and glowing nodes and circuitry. The glow of their campfire is all but swallowed by the surrounding blackness.
“FAITH IS THE BEST AVAILABLE OPTION. BUT WE’RE STILL LOST.”
